Does anyone know of a good plugin that will generate subharmonics?
I would like to put a little more low frequency "oomph" into my bass
track. Preferrable LADSPA, but VST would work, too.
Thanks for any help!

I'm starting to enjoy glitchy percussion sounds I'm hearing in a lot of computer music these days, and want to experiment with those.
I've asked around about how people are making these sounds, and the answers I get are "Battery", "Redrum", and "Reason". All firmly wedged closed and proprietary. of course.
Are there any good free tools for making glitchy drum sounds, which do not require the use of WINE? If the answer to that is "SC/CSound/PD/ChucK", that's fantastic, can anyone point me to some particularly good source code or patches for glitchy drums in those languages that I could start experimenting with?

After some big issues with my integrated firewire port on my laptop, using a
Presonus Firebox sound card, I am thinking about buy an ExpressCard. But I
an not an expert. So I would like some advices choosing a good chip.
Seeking on the Internet I have found some ExpressCard with Texas Instruments
chips or belkin chip... Are they good ones ?
Thanks for your help
The following has nothing to do with audio, or even with Linux per se,
but I think of you as the right sort of people to be interested in
something like this :-) Feel free to write me off-list and we can take
the discussion elsewhere.
I've been programming professionally for about 8 years. I'm
self-taught. Lately I've been wishing I had a better grasp of computer
science fundamentals, but I can't afford the time or money to attend a
degree program. But hey, MIT has most of their academic materials
online for free - including textbooks, class notes, and lecture
The problem with doing it alone in my spare time is that there are too
many other things competing for my attention. I think it would help a
lot to have an online discussion group - a group that commits to
finish* a given course in a certain number of weeks, and can help each
other stay motivated, and help each other with difficult concepts,
etc. By "finish" I mean: watch every lecture, read the texts, and
complete every assignment.
Is anybody else interested in something like that?
I'd propose to start at the beginning, with the introductory scheme
(btw, I got this idea from hearing about some people doing something similar
with Knuth's "Art of Computer Programming" books. but of course now I
can't find a relevant link.)
There was a thread on this a while back, the need for opensource or
free/minimal cost alternatives to Sibelius and such on Linux.
One can run Finale Notepad or various lower cost upgrades using Wine and this
may be the best alternative if one can get the MIDI and printing working this
For lack of a handy staffbook--and it is easier to simply grab a staffbook, a
extra fine pen and a typex stick--I tried what I have on my Debian Sid box:
Notedit--KDE's scoring program will get the job done. Most functionality is
there. Chord entry is very awkward and the ui needs more toolbar items. But
it works and will export to most everything needed including abc which opens
the door to many Windows and Linux programs that can print score, Lilypond,
MusicTex and MusicML.
Canorus--successor to Notedit. Too early for this one.
Denemo--GUI for Lilypond. Too early for this one as well. Nice start but had
to go back to Notedit to continue.
Musescore/mscore--new boy on the block. Coming along nicely and will soon be
the best around. Still work to be done, text field editing is nigh-impossible
but this is the alternative to Finale and Sibelius to watch. Imported MusicML
MIDI keyboard to any of these is precarious at best.
For printing (engraving when doing music):
Lilypond--works well with its peculiarities. Not enough control of formatting
when exporting from noteedit, et al. Denemo not ready so need to know its
markup language to really use it well. It is supposed to be the standard.
MusixTex--works nearly as well as Lilypond but does not handle UTF8, foreign
characters out of the box.
Musescore--one when sets the formatting parameters (not defaulted properly)
produces very nice results. Its scoring is WYSIWYG once the formatting params
are set up. Again, the one to watch.
I discovered that travelling is more fun if my own music is in my ears. So I
decided (and my wife approved) to buy a mobile player. As big parts of my
music collection are oggs and I am to audiophile to reconvert them to mp3, I
am searching for a mobile player that can do ogg as well as mp3 (I don't give
anything for wma, aac or other proprietary stuff).
I like the way Apple makes things just work. If the Ipod nano played ogg I
would march into the next local supermarket that has them on discount
Who has experience with Linux on the Ipod (normal one without
nano/shuffle/etc...)? Is it stable and usable?
Which other players would you recommend for their abilities and usability?
Have a nice weekend,

After a month or so log in as root and do a rm / -rf. Or ask your

Since you haven't looked at it more than a "glance", and therefore don't
know anything to be able to say anything either, I wonder what your agenda
is. But it seems like your agenda is to defend Ardour, no matter what.
In case that is true, why?
Oh, and you are completely wrong, by the way. Traverso's interface is not
about simplicity and intuitivity, you had known that if you had tried
traverso. (and especially protux, its predecessor).
And yes, I must admit I have a small agenda too, against Ardour. I don't
think ardour's user interface is very efficient . Ardour is great, but
it would have been even greater if all the developers on ardour spent all
of their time exclusively working on making ardour's user interface more
efficient to use. Traverso is an excellent program to look at to improve
Surely this question was asked before. Recebtly there was a short
thread about archive.org which proposed other sites where music can be
uploaded. They all looked pretty fancy to me who is not doing that
much with music. I'd just like to know of some place where it is
possible to upload some music files to share. I don't want to make a
career nor do I have a promo for an album. I don't even finish the
toons I start. You know, a just for fun type of thing. Free. And
possibly withotu any small-letter clause that says that once uploaded
the coyrights of the toon is given to the site operators.
Are there any places like these ? If you know any, please let me
I'm considering entering some of my music in an international
competition. However, the organization accepts scores only in one of the
three formats indicated in the subject line. Thus, I need to find
someone who has one or more of those apps and can help recast my lovely
LilyPond scores into an acceptable format. I doubt there's a nice simple
LP-to-proprietary-format conversion utility, so is there anyone here who
can advise and/or assist me in the conversion process ?
Many thanks in advance,
